I cannot remember how many countless times a girlfriend has texted me “I’m crazy”. No my dear, you’re not crazy. He’s just an asshole.
When he lied to you over and over again, you had a right to be upset. That wasn’t you being crazy, that was your trust being broken.
When he blatantly talked to other girls in front of you or near you, you had a right to be mad. That wasn’t you being crazy, that was your respect being shattered.
When he chose others over you, you had a right to be frustrated. That wasn’t you being crazy, that was your presence being dismissed.
To the men who call women crazy, you’re wrong.
You’re an ass. You’ve lied, flaked, wandered, twisted, belittled, played, messed up… I can keep going on and on. You put this label on women saying that we are all “crazy” but we aren’t.
We call you out on your bullshit and that scares you.
We tell you that you are wrong and that angers you.
We tell you when you fucked up and that annoys you.
Stop throwing the word around and belittling women because you can’t handle the truth. It’s not us, it’s you.
*Disclaimer: Clearly this happens on both sides. Lying, betraying, and twisting is never ok from anyone. This rant came about from a conversation with a couple girlfriends about their experiences and frustrations. Shout out to the girls who told me how they feel and let me write about it! *
